I am a blessed girl. Family, friends, home and health (Even bad health is good health when you think of the alternative! Our daddy says any day you wake up above the green is a good day.) There is just so much to be thankful for. God is good to me in ways I cannot imagine, in ways I do not even see. I know I keep my guardian angels quite busy on a slow day!
The image below is a coloring page you can click on and print for the munchkins at your house on Thanksgiving Day. Something to keep them busy with while you are finishing getting the table ready.
It has been very blowsy and blustery here. Not many leaves left for the neighbors to sweep and rake. I do believe they have all landed at our back stoop. Toby is loving it. He loves fallen and blowing leaves. A good frolic is good for a puppy he thinks.
Our retreat last week was so good. My friends are amazing women with talents for friendship and for sewing/crafting. Much laughter and monkey business. :o) Thankful we will be meeting again in May. This will be our 10 year anniversary retreat. Plans are in the works to make it extra special.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
I am blessed! ~Angela

We have been so busy. Farmer's Market is over for the season. BUT we did 2 shows the following 2 Saturday's. Both were wonderful shows. And now we are heading to our annual autumn retreat with our online quilting friends, Backporch Friends, tomorrow. Just one more sleep. Love my girlies!! Our May retreat will be our 10th year!!! We are planning some special things for that one don't ya know!!! Would love to have all of the past attendees who could, come back. I have also started a booth in an antique mall with my sister Debbie. It is a really nice mall, lots of primitives and a good overall variety of wares. Still in the getting it stocked phase.
Here is a photo our Market Master Laura, posted on Facebook. I look frumpy and dumpy, but it shows a corner of the booth and Penny's yarn. She has more than this, but has it at the cooperative right now.
And of course our hats. We nearly sold out. Seriously! It was crazy. I am going to be hooking it like mad to get some inventory to the places I have promised them. Penny too. We have already been planning what new things to make for the market next year. Gotta have something new each year to excite everyone.
Hope everyone is doing well. I am sending out special prayers and hugs to our dear friend Sandra who recently lost her precious husband Dave.
I am blessed. ~Angela
